Groves appliances have been an integral part of Omaha’s community since its opening in 1952.
Its name derives from a local barber who cut his hair at the barber shop.
The barber’s son, Robert, was one of the first customers.
When Groves opened, its customers included a couple from Texas who worked at the Omaha World-Herald.
In addition to the barbers, Groves also has a barbershop, a clothing store and a nail salon.
In 2018, the Omaha City Council approved a $10 million bond to renovate the building.
The city had initially planned to build a new gas station and grocery store, but the project was delayed due to a gas leak in a neighboring building.
Instead, the city bought the building and its surrounding buildings for $25 million.
The new Groves was completed in 2020.
Groves will be the new home for the Omaha Barbershop on Friday.
“I think this is a fantastic location,” said Mike Todt, a barber from Kansas City.
“They’ve done an amazing job in the community.
I’m really excited about it.”
The barbers also will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., and they will be closed on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays.
Grovers owner, Dave Bierbauer, said the bar is planning to make the changes to the building to accommodate the remodeling, which will take place in mid-2018.
The building is owned by Omaha’s city-owned and operated utility, but Groves is the only company that will be making the changes.
Bierbs plans to open Groves on Friday, Jan. 7.
The Groves Barbers will be in the new space until April.
Tods said he was not sure if the bar will have a bar.
“You have to be in your chair, your chair is not a chair,” Todts said.
“This is not just another restaurant, this is your home, this space is your life.
I think it’s going to be a good place for people to come.”
A Groves remodel is expected to bring in $2 million for the city, but it may not be enough.
“The people who work here are going to have to keep doing what they’re doing to keep things going,” Bierrs said.
Biers said he will not be able to offer his barber service because the bar has been closed since the renovation began.
“We are going into this with the mindset that we need to have our barbers here,” he said.
Grooves customers can find the new bar at 901 North Street, Suite B, Omaha.
